    Default Bladerunner?

    What is Blade runner and why do I need to watch it?

    I keep seeing it mentioned everywhere but have no idea what it is.

    It's a noir/sci-fi/action/drama film. It stars Harrison Ford and is considered on of the greatest sci-fi films of all time. Ford in this movie is a Blade Runner. They hunt and destroy androids (or replicants) who have gone rogue. It's a great film, really. Watch it for crying out loud.

    wow I feel like I've just stumbled upon some kind of mythical beast .... someone who hasn't seen Blade Runner.

    I mean I always knew they existed but to encounter one for myself, I never thought it would happen.


    make sure you watch the directors cut, the original release was kind of dumbed down featuring completely uneeded naration by harrison ford.

    What we have here is a rarer creature, someone who has not only not seen Blade Runner...but doesn't even know what it is! I say we hold him in a containment lab until we can run some tests, and most importantly, get him to watch it.

    Ok I feel kind of stupid now. I am definitely putting this at the list of my films to watch.

    I also had no idea it had Harrison Ford in it. Really need to watch this

    Don't feel stupid! But definitely watch it. And then do some reading on it.

    That movie was brilliant. Ever since then I've had a fantasy of being a gritty chain smoking film noir detective in a dystopian scifi megacity.
